  1. Using Different Credit Cards for Different Subscriptions

    Azure needs to allow multiple subscriptions under one account to each have a different credit card. Currently we can only have one card for all the subscriptions under one account. I use Azure hosting for multiple clients but there are some projects I wish to directly bill to them. I cannot, I either have to manage multiple accounts (which cost a lot with time and human resources) or I charge through my account and then have to spend more time on the other end billing.

    This is a good suggestion, we have plans to do this and will even provide the option to apply changes only to the current subscription, or to all subscriptions on the account.

    Let me know in the comments if you have further feedback.

    Thanks,

    We keep updating out pricing rates and models to better align with our customers business needs.

  3. Increase the ARM default Core Quota per region

    [ENG] Please increase the default limit for VMs/Cores in Azure Resource Manager.

    The current ARM default Core/VM limit per region for an Azure in Open and even some Pay-As-You-Go subscriptions is only 10-20. This is not enough at all to deploy a few VMs, and it prevents customers from expanding their service towards rapid business growth and urgent requirement. More flexibility and convenience should be provided as default.

    [Japanese] Azure リソースマネージャの仮想マシン/コア数の既定上限値引き上げ依頼

    Azure in Open や従量課金プランのサブスクリプションについて、現在のAzure リソースマネージャの仮想マシン/コア数の既定上限値は、10 から 20 程度です。
    この既定上限値では、十分な仮想マシンを作成することができず、お客様の大切なビジネスの急成長や必要性に対応することができません。
    既定上限値が緩和され、柔軟に便利に利用できるよう改善よろしくお願いいたします。

  4. Send SUPPORT invoices via email

    Glad to see the ability to send invoices via email has been implemented.

    However, it's still NOT possible to opt-in for SUPPORT invoices via email. This minimizes the usefulness of invoices via email if I still need to go to the billing portal to access by support invoice.

    Please implement the ability send support invoices via email. Thank you.

  5. display receipts/invoices for Azure Marketplace purchases that has a similar layout as the standard Azure invoices.

    Right now I have to go to commerce.microsoft.com to display a list of transactions, but my accounting department would like a receipt/invoice for the Azure Marketplace purchases that has a similar layout and information like the standard Azure invoices (so it has an invoice number, invoice date, method of payment, etc).

  6. Changing Payment Mode from Invoice to Credit Card

    My Credit Card linked with Azure Subscription expired and I happened to switch to Invoice Payment Mode inadvertently. I did not know that it requires offline wire transfer. Quasar is no longer supporting online wire transfer from India.

    I could not switch back to Credit Card Payment Mode and reached Microsoft Support for help. They said it is not possible any more and must go for Offline Wire Transfer!

    I am surprised to learn this! How could such a brilliant system miss a
    feature of conveniently switching between multiple payment mode as and when desired by its customer?

    I wish…

  7. Registering to Azure (free) services without Credit/Debit card check

    Currently Azure provides a good amount of services for free which will benefits a lot of developers all around the world specially countries like Iran.

    Being a developer in Iran which I believe is one of the biggest consumer of Microsoft products like Windows and Windows Phone and also one of the cheapest out sourcing centers for other countries like Australia and European countries it would be great to be able to register with Azure and use its services like Web Apps, Application Insights, Mobile Services,... for personal use or for out sourced projects.

    My suggestion is to offer a…

  9. Prevent Trial subscriptions from organizational users

    Please allow the ability of Global Admins to prevent organization users from creating their own trial subscriptions. There appears no method of doing this and the trial gets associated with the Organization which is not desired.

  10. don't use credit card for simple verification

    I only use the free translation service, but if you want my credit card details to sign up for that, then I can live without it. If at any time I should want to use a paid service, then you can have my credit card details.

  11. Expose Partner of Record information in PowerShell for Azure subscriptions and Office 365

    Currently we need to use the web interface to see and update the PoR information for Azure subscriptions and for Office 365 license subscriptions.

    At a minimum, it would be handy to see that information in the details of Get-AzureSubscription and Get-MsolSubscription
    That way, we can easily see if any of them need to be fixed without needing to go into each one individually.

    Obviously the follow-up on that would be to add the ability to set the information.

    Thanks.

  12. Change subscription from CSP to pay-as-you-go

    Once you setup your Azure infrastructure using a CSP subscription, you are unable to move the billing to a credit card pay-as-you go subscription. This definitively needs to be fixed!

  13. I have no phone other then VoIP; you don't allow this why?

    I am a start-up and have only a VoIP phone, because this isn't allowed I can't try Azure; really? The credit card isn't enough, or is it more about assuring one has money?
    Ahh, the "Greed Evil" concept again, **** am I tired of it!

  14. Option to consolidate invoices of multiple subscriptions

    As a company with multiple business streams, each responsible for their costing, we need to use separate "Subscription" in order to see their Azure costs clearly. For Finance department to process payment, however, it'll save admin work if can consolidate all subscription charge in ONE invoice.

  15. Get Offer ID programmatically through PowerShell / Azure CLI

    It's not possible to get a subscriptions offer id through API today. It's needed to programmatically be able to use the rate card api since you need the offer id.

  17. Make it possible to transfer an MSDN (BizSpark) benefits subscription from one account to another

    When I first created my Azure account and attached the MSDN benefit to it, I used my Windows LiveID. Subsequently, I created a second Azure account using my Organizational login from Office 365 so that we could take advantage of the 365 Azure AD integration. I called support, but they said the benefit cannot be transferred until the new account has been empty for 90 days. Since we're using the new account for production, this is not possible for us. Please address the technical limitation which is causing this situation.

  18. Allow Alerting on All Limits / Quotas

    Every limit or quota in azure should be listed on the usage + quotas page (or possibly a new page since this is more comprehensive). Users should be able to easily set alert notifications on any of this limits/quotas. Consider something like a checkbox to enable each limit/quota with a an option to override the percentage the alert fires at. Possibly default to 75%. Customers are frequently caught off guard by some limit they didn't even know existed (e.g. Max number of Role Assignments or API calls per hour). When users first log onto azure we should guide them through…

  19. Invoices for Azure Add-On customers (external services)

    Currently, invoices are not prepared for payments of the Azure Add-On customers (external services) (i.e. SendGrid).

    This causes problems in our accounting. Could you make them available?

  20. To re-generate Previous invoice with updated details

    Can you please have some solution to re-generate previous Invoice with updated details.

    For example: When we update the Company Name after the last Invoice generated, we have to wait till next Invoice to get that New company name reflected which does not make sense.

    This usually affects the Business since we cannot make payment with Incorrect Company name which will ultimately Suspend our services.

    Please TREAT this Feedback as URGENT and have some solution on this ASAP.

    Thanks
